The 2016 fruit harvest is expected to see a 28 percent drop year-on-year due to the late frosts which hit the country at the end of April. Fruit growers estimate losses of around 400 million crowns. According to the head of the Fruit Growers Union Martin Ludvik the fallout should not affect prices on the market. The most severe damage is reported in southern Moravia.
